Common Core Assessment Packet {Freebies}

Finally...the long awaited Common Core Assessments for third and fourth quarter are here! A list of required materials is included at the end of each file. I hope you will find these useful, and please let me know if you have any questions! 

Download the combined Common Core Complete Assessment Packet if you want to keep all your assessments together in one packet. This easy-to-use packet includes every kindergarten common core standard in sequence. Just check off the boxes to indicate which standards you'll be assessing each quarter. 

Download the Common Core Assessments Pack if you'd like to have each quarter in a separate packet. The standards are already separated into four quarters based upon how my colleagues decided to divide them, so this will be less customizable than the packet above.

  36. Hi there! I love your blog and these assessments ! I have a question for you! We had a team planning meeting yesterday and I showed this to my team. We started using it to try to sort out the common core, but it seemed to be missing at least one whole section? All of the investigations parts of LA common core? Is your district not using CC in it's entirety? We are just trying to work through this together! Thanks for any help you can offer!!! eden_capps@scps.k12.fl.us

  37. I looked for an email address on your blog but didn't find one. My colleagues and I LOVE your common core assessment and would love to use it for our kindergartens next year. However we are on trimesters and would like to modify what you have to accommodate this. Do you have the combined assessment in a word document? If so, is there any way you'd be willing to share it?!! We would be so grateful! Email hilln@sd5.k12.mt.us

  48. Love, love, love! Your document is making it possible for all K teachers in our district to finally have common assessments. There are a few we would like to add. Can you email me an editable version? I would really appreciate it! Thanks for all of your hard work! dawsonj@franklinschools.org.

    1. Hi Nicole! When I ran across your CCK Assessment I was so excited! Our district wants us to use their newly designed Common Core Report Card but we were not provided any useful assessments to help us. We have to make it fit our quarter benchmarks. Are you still willing to email the Word document so I can make the necessary adjustments? If so, I would LOVE a copy! I would have been more than happy to purchase it on TPT, you might want to consider that after all the time and effort you put into preparing this assessment. One thing I need to add is a scoring guide for each standard. If anyone else has already done that I would love to see a copy. My email is sropfer@gmail.com Thank you so much! Debbie Opfer

  54. I love these! Thank you for sharing your hard work. I am curious if you have editable versions? Or editable versions we could purchase? Our pacing is a little different, and would be great to add a scoring rubric. THANK YOU!

  56. This is such a great assessment! It is obvious that you spent a lot of time and effort on this. Thank you for sharing it with the public. As many of other have stated, do you happen to have this in an editable version that you would be willing to pass on? I would like to use parts of it in my classroom, but would like to put it in the order I teach those concepts. My email is mshier@ypsd.org Thank you again for all your hard work!

  57. This is such a wonderful assessment! You have done some great work! I have been working towards this, but my versions are way too long!!! However, when I attempted to print this, there were splotches all over it. Is that a copyright issue? If so, is there a way I can print and use this?
    Thanks!
    PS: LOVE this!

  58. I would like to know if this is available in a Word format or something that will allow me to add to the assessment. My principal loves this and my kindergarten teachers were thankful to have such a wonderful resource however there are a few more items we want to add due to requirements within our district. I would be willing to pay for a format that I can edit. My email is woodev@tulsaschools.org. Thank you!

  60. How do you use this for grading purposes? We are trying to simplify our assessments and are intrigued by yours; however, we use FAME scores and are not sure how we could use this idea.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We basically use it as a checklist to determine whether or not the student is meeting each standard. Our report card has the standards broken down individually, and we have three grades (NY - not yet meeting standard, DP - developing proficiency towards standard, MP - meeting with proficiency). For most of the standards, if they complete the task/answer the question correctly, we give an MP. Partially correct, a DP. But we also take into account student work and our personal observations of their abilities.

      Sorry, I'm not sure what FAME is...I haven't used that before!

  61. Wow I just want to say thank you for providing this! I am first year Kindergarten teacher at a private school with very little assistance in curriculum and assessment department and this has really saved me a TON of time and really helped me simplify my assessments!

  64. Thank you so much for posting this assessment packet! My team was very excited to find this and we have forwarded it to our District. Would it be possible to see a copy of your District's Report Card to see how it translates from the Assessment packet to the Report Card? Thank you so much.

  65. Thank you so much for posting this fabulous packet! I found it a year ago, when our school was starting to prep for Common Core. We are now working to implement it next year, and we want to use your assessment packet as a progress report in kindergarten. It is perfect for parents - no technical teacher-speak. :) However, our district has recoded the strands so ours won't match up with the nation-wide CCS coding system (i.e. all K.SL standard are labeled K.SL, not K.SL.1, K.SL.2, etc.). Would it be possible to get a copy of this in a Word/Excel format, so we can change the coding to match our district? We really would like to use this. Thank you so much!

  67. Working on common core lesson plans for a new book titled 'The Best Bear Hugs Ever.' I feel this book will be good for working on opinion writing, dictating and drawing among other things. You can read a shortened version of the story at www.TheBestBearHugsEver.com.

    Hope to see some of you at the Las Vegas National Kindergarten Conference - booth 132.
